So I have an Ibanez Artcore AK86 that gives quite a bit of feedback even when I step out of the room that the amp is in. What are the pros and cons of potting pickups cause I heard it helps resist feedback. Also if I should do it what kind of wax do I need. Any other tips would be great too.

unless your guitar is 50 years old the pickups are already potted.
